ES 104 Systems Thinking for non-Engineers

The systems approach is introduced and applied across various contexts. Systems concepts, including sinks, sources, stocks, and feedback loops are used in understanding and modeling a wide range of applications including earth and environmental systems, ecological systems, social and economic systems, and engineering systems. Identification of commonalities in system behaviors across various applications is emphasized. Students apply the approach to a case study of their choosing.
